How Do You Measure Hair Extension Length?

It is very simple to measure the length of hair extension. There are 2 ways for you to measure it correctly:

When the hair extension is not applied to your head, you can simply use the measuring tape and measure the length of the hair extension from the top to the end. For wavy and curly hair, you need to straighten the hair extension to measure the length correctly.

When the hair extension is already applied to your head, you can measure it from the position that it is attached to your real hair to the end of your hair. Make sure that you are standing in front of the mirror to get a better look at the length of your hair extension.

For curly texture, you have to stretch the strands out and use a tape measure to start measuring. You can see how to measure curly hair length and the curly hair length chart by click here.

How To Choose The Right Hair Extension Length

When choosing the length of your hair extensions, there are a few things that you need to consider to ensure a seamless blend and a natural-looking result that suit you the best. Let's explore them in more detail.

Type Of Hair Extension

Hair extensions come in a variety of lengths to accommodate different hair types and preferences. It's important to note what type of hair extension is suitable for your hair texture and length. With many types of hair extensions such as clip-in, tape-in, keratin, halo, nano ring… you need to carefully consider the type that you feel most comfortable with and looks the best on.

Hair Texture

Hair texture also affects how extensions blend with your natural hair. Straight hair extensions tend to appear longer than curly or wavy extensions due to their flat nature when measured. Curly hair extensions, on the other hand, may appear slightly shorter when not straightened. If you have wavy hair, the length of your extensions will fall somewhere in between straight and curly extensions. Take your hair texture into account when selecting the length that will best match your natural hair.

Styling Goals

Your desired hairstyle and future styling plans should also influence your choice of hair extension length. If you're looking to experiment with different hairstyles and frequently trim or style your hair, opting for longer extensions can provide more versatility. Long extensions allow you to trim and style as desired without compromising the overall length. On the other hand, if you prefer a more low-maintenance approach, short extensions may be the better choice.

Your Height

Height plays a role in how hair extensions appear on an individual. Taller individuals may find that extensions appear shorter on them, while shorter individuals may experience the opposite effect. Consider your height when choosing the length of your extensions to ensure they complement your overall appearance and proportions.

Choosing Length or Volume

Instead of lengthening hair, many people use hair extensions to thicken thinning hair. In this situation, it's preferable to get extensions that are only 2 inches longer than your original hair. 

The best extensions for blending with your hair are those that are less than 4 inches long (10 cm) from the length of your natural hair.

Try 12-inch (30 cm) extensions if your hair is shoulder length; they are the ideal length for adding a little length and volume.

A good extension length will be 24 inches (61 cm) for those with long hair that reaches the middle of their back. Your waist should be covered by your hair after you apply extensions.

Remember, using too many hair extensions or adding too many wefts will make the hair look unnatural.
